My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Toucan Alley this past January for ten wonderful days; from the minute we arrived on a late Wednesday night Neil made us feel welcome and went out of his way to get us settled in after a long day of traveling from the cold Northeast. We were immediately captivated by the beautiful accommodations. The home is decorated and designed to put you immediately at ease….but the best was yet to come. We awoke the next morning to the sound of Howler monkeys and the jungle coming to life around us within our own private 16 acres! As we took our first glance out from our master bedroom suite, words cannot describe the surrounding beauty and the awe inspiring blue Pacific, from our 180 degree panoramic view. My wife and I have had the privilege of traveling to many beautiful places but truly cannot think of a place that had more to offer in sheer beauty and diversity of things to do. We are typically very active people and love to explore the different places that we visit….but for the first time we really never felt the need to leave our accommodations at Toucan Alley, as it had everything we could ask for in its relaxing awe inspiring location. We did take an excursion on horseback up to Nauyaca Falls which was amazing and visited two of the many national parks and beaches…but were most happy just to stay in our wonderful Villa looking out over our jungle paradise and relaxing in the infinite pool. Thanks again Neil for always being available when called upon but also respecting our privacy which is what we truly desired most. Costa Rica is a magical place which we look forward to returning to many times in the future.

Renting a car in Costa Rica

Although Costa Rica is blessed with a superb bus system that operates at a low cost, the easiest way to make the most of your vacation in paradise is to rent a vehicle.

Acquiring a rental car in this country is a simple process—a passport, valid driver’s license and active credit card will do the trick—but there are a few items of note that will assist you in your search for the proper wheels.

First and foremost, you must decide if you want to pick up a rental car near the international airport in San Jose, which is what most people choose and we will email you detailed directions to Dominical or you can wait until after you’ve settled in at one of our vacation rentals in Dominical. If want us to arrange a taxi or mini bus and hold off on a rental car until after arriving in Dominical, we can help put you in contact with a local Car Rental agent.

The drive south from San Jose to Dominical takes approximately three and quarter hours and is fairly straightforward. There are only two highways to travel on, Highway 27 from San Jose to the Jaco exit, and the Pan-American Highway that runs south from Jaco. The Pan-Am Highway provides some of the most spectacular roadside scenery in all of Central America.

Since a good amount of your vacation will be spent in the southern zone where dirt-and-gravel roads easily outnumber paved pathways, we recommend renting a 4x4 vehicle. Can you get by with a two-wheel drive? In most cases, yes, but a 4x4 is a better option in the event of inclement weather or if your party wants to explore deep jungle far off the beaten path.

The price for rental cars varies by season, with the green season, May through November, being the cheapest time of year to purchase a rental. From December through April, prices increase by at least 25 percent.

The Costa Rican government requires all rental cars to have insurance. Even if your credit card company covers you on rentals, you must, at a minimum, buy liability insurance.

While many credit cards offer add-on perks to vehicle insurance, or will even elevate typical liability insurance to full coverage, it’s important to call your company in advance to garner specific details about international car rentals.

Liability insurance costs about $20 per day. With only liability, the deposit on your credit card will range from between $750 to $1,500 depending on the type of vehicle. Toyota is known to require the smallest deposit at $750.

Liability coverage is extremely limited, and you can be charged for any damage that occurs to your rental. For an extra $5 per day, travelers can extend liability coverage to include damage to windows, tires and mirrors.

To avoid concerns about paying for any potential car damage, you can purchase full-coverage insurance for approximately $40 per day. Your credit card deposit also shrinks with full coverage, often to as low as $100 per vehicle.

Lastly, many car rental companies offer complimentary cellphone and GPS service, although these services aren’t always advertised. Road maps are also provided for
